Why do I blog?

It's funny because I was thinking about this a lot recently.  And then Stephanie from My Messmerized Life did a guest spot on Growing up Geeky the other day asking the same question and giving her own response.

My own response is similar to Stephanie's.  I came across the life of other bloggers in my circle and thought, That's cool!  And at the time I was pregnant with Lucas.  My brother, Nick, had actually mentioned to me that maybe it's something I could do now that our family was growing.

Thus, I created my very own blog shortly after having Lucas. 

And since then I've really taken to it I suppose.  Lucas became my very best reason for blogging and posting a ton on pictures.  And as a result of all the picture-taking I became more and more interested in photography itself. 

So not only has this blog become a way to keep my family and friends in touch with us, it's also become a way to express myself through my own writing and new hobby of photography.  As I predicted in my initial post, it has already evolved.  Who knows what else is to come?

But now I will be starting a new job really soon.  And I intend to be super busy with it {going from one extreme to another!} so I expect my blogging to reduce significantly.  I do have several drafts in the works that I might be able to dredge up to scratch eventually.

So, I ask you next.  Why do you blog?

  1. My blog is primarily intended to chronicle my return to teaching and the first year of an innovative new charter school, but what I write isn't exclusively about that.

    I like sharing some funny stories and anecdotes and letting people know what I'm up to, but a lot of my writing is therapeutic, or maybe even cathartic. Even though I've made a lot of money in my life with my voice (teaching AND announcing), sometimes I can express myself better with the written word. And that, I suppose, is why I blog. :)

    1. And I'm really glad you listened to those that encouraged you to start Alex! You are definitely a strong voice in all aspects and I'm glad to have a break in my usual Mommy blogs to read yours.
